The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of transiently elevated endogenous hormone concentrations during exercise on strength training adaptations. Ten subjects performed four unilateral strength training session per week on the elbow flexors for 11 weeks. During two of the weekly sessions, leg exercises were performed to acutely increase the systemic anabolic hormone concentration immediately before the exercises for one of the elbow flexors.On the two other weekly training sessions, the contralateral elbow flexors were trained without prior leg exercises. By randomizing one arm of the subjects to serve as a control and the other as experimental, both conditions have the same nutritional and genetic environment. Serum testosterone and growth hormone was significantly increased during said  training session, while no hormonal changes occurred in the previous session. Both sessions  increased 1RM in biceps curl, peak power in elbow flexors at 30 and 60% of 1RM, and muscle volume of the elbow flexors In conclusion, performing leg exercises prior to arm exercises, and thereby increasing the levels of serum testosterone and growth hormone, induced superior strength training adaptations compared to arm training without acute elevation of hormones. Ps Get your weight training on because it’s benefits are superior to none-other . Get Your tough Spot On.

If You focus on results you will never change If you focus on change you will get results. Long-term health & strength require an investment in your body that might not pay noticeable dividends for weeks or months. It’s scary, but true. Of course, it’s no fun to keep looking in the mirror without seeing what you visualize when you close your eyes at night. When you feel yourself mouthing the words “It’s not working,” it can seem like the only options you have are drastic change or heading back to the couch.

The risk factors for adult chronic diseases, like hypertension and type two diabetes, are increasingly seen in younger ages, often a result of unhealthy eating habits and increased weight gain. Dietary habits established in childhood often carry into adulthood, so teaching children how to eat healthy at a young age will help them stay healthy throughout their life. The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you’ll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think! Spotters Rock Get Your Tough Spot On

Solid As A Rock

THE FRENCH FLAG

THE FRENCH FLAG -REVOLUTION & FREEDOM


I know what you’re thinking another grueling workout but not today REST DAY. Congratulations to our Tough Spotter Winners (Michelle. J & Luke. H)of time trials for last posted workouts they both received complementary personal training sessions with The Primal Unleashed Teaser Guide( full guide when we launch later this month) Although much prized, especially in sports, mental toughness is a term that is sometimes overused with regards to behavior during high-pressure situations. Our Stone Age ancestors didn’t need a big motivational speech to get them out of the cave and off to hunt for the necessities of survival. So what is mental toughness and how can we nurture and develop it in ourselves and others.  Motivation, that factor of wanting to achieve a specific goal more than anything else, is a key factor that separates champions from well non Tough Spotters
. Belief in yourself, the best athletes believe in themselves and as a result are better able to persevere through setbacks. Focus, mentally tough people don’t get distracted. They constantly stay on target by reminding themselves of what it is they are trying to achieve. Putting it into Practice Here’s how can we enhance our own levels of mental toughness. Set Realistic Goals – Goals are a roadmap that marks out how you’re going to get from where you are to where you want to be. For best results, think of the acronym of SMART goals. They should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Stay Positive, negative thought patterns only take away from your ability to attain your goals. Resolve to find the positive side to every situation, no matter how bleak it may seem. Internal Dialog, many of us get stuck in negative feedback loops in our heads (Sound Familiar). We criticize ourselves, focusing on negative outcomes and even berate ourselves as if we were the fans of an opposing team. Your thoughts eventually become your actions so make sure you don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to anyone else. Focus on the Present, no matter what’s happened in the past, you can’t change it. You can only focus on the here and now. Worrying too much about the past or future detracts from your ability to focus on what you need to do to achieve your goals. When you make mistakes, let them go. When you do something fantastic, let it go as well. Both can negatively affect your level of attention to what you need to do right here, right now. As you work through these ideas, keep in mind that mental toughness is a skill, just as shooting a basketball or making a proper golf swing is a skill. You wouldn’t expect to master either of those skills immediately and you won’t master the art of mental toughness immediately either. Just keep working and try to get a little better each day more consistent, more confident and more focused the foolproof method of eventual success.

Primal Instincts Teaser #2

THE BRITISH FLAG

The Untied Kingdom Flag – The Union Jack

Incinerate calories, matrix approved stamina, increase your endurance and full body strength. It is broken down into two Tough Spotter stages, the first stage is designed to prepare you, and the second stage burns calories, speeds up your metabolism, and develops stamina.

Tough Spotter Duration: 20 minutes

  • Spotter      Intensity:      Medium to High- Tough Spotters never go lower GRRRRRRR
  • Equipment: weighted vest,  heavy bag, logs, rocks, whatever your heart desires J!

Tough Spotter warm up

Run 3 – 5 minutes up a steep incline whilst carrying at least 30-35 lbs of weight / wear a weighted vest. Stay at 60% to 75% of your physical limit for warm up duration. The purpose of this stage is to get you warmed up and ready for Tough Spotter Stage #2.

Spotter Highlighted Tips: Improvise by carrying a weight behind your neck whilst walking up and down stairs, or even carry a heavy bag in each hand whilst stepping up and down onto a single step or bear hugging a heavy bag.

Remember! Stay at 75% intensity, don’t burn out! You can go Tough Spotter ballistic in the next stage.

Tough Spotter Stage #2 – Intense Interval Training

Set up a small circuit of 4 – 6 exercises. Now do each exercise one after the other at 100% intensity – with no rest in between 🙂 Each lap of your circuit should take no more than 3 minutes.

Incorporate some of these exercises:

  • Chin-ups or Pull-ups.
  • Pushups.
  • Presses – pushing a weight above your head or chest.
  • Sit-ups (not crunches).
  • Squats or Leg Raises.

Vary the exercises so you’re working as much of your body as possible
